Catherine Waruguru

Starting us on the list is the gorgeous Laikipia Woman Representative Cate Waruguru who started her career in politics in her early 20s.

It goes without saying that the woman rep’s fashion sense is enviable. Whether she is donning a skirt suit, a gown, a trouser or dress, Waruguru keeps it classy and stylish.

On matters politics, Cate Waruguru has been flip-flopping on her political stand.
